Sometimes change is overdue

9 Jan

broken-computersizedWe see the city’s IT Director has left for another job.

Probably a good thing in our opinion.

The eight years he was there were too quiet.

Most of the stuff the city took credit for over the past two terms were things started or brought on-line during the Jeremy Harris administration.

This morning’s newspaper says he “oversaw the city’s creation of an online system for services such as vehicle registrations, building permit applications and driver’s test bookings.”

Wrong.

Vehicle registration was done in Harris’ last year.
Building permit applications development was started in Harris’ last year.
Driver’s test bookings was on-line before Harris’ left office.

In the eight years, the city’s information technology went from award-winning to also ran.

Shame.
